Screen Tight's unique system is easily adaptable to most screen porches. The Base attaches to existing 2" x 4" or 4" x 4" framing with wood screws, roof tacks or staples. Once the Base is attached, the screen is rolled into place with a standard screen roller tool. The excess screen is cut and removed. The Cap snaps into the Base, completing the installation.
Screen Tight is durable and weather resistant. It is low maintenance because it won't corrode, rust or rot, and never needs painting. NOTE:
Screen wire and spline not included. Recommended spline size is .175" when using fiberglass screen wire; .165" when using aluminum screen wire.
Pre-punched holes on 8" (196 mm) centers result in a quick and consistent attachment. Once the base is attached, the screen and spline are rolled into place with a standard screen spline roller
. If aluminum screen wire is being used, the SS165 series
spline is recommended; for fiberglass wire use SS175 series
spline. The excess screen is cut and removed. The cap snaps into the base, completing the installation.
Screen Tight™ is durable and weather resistant. It never needs painting, and won't corrode, rust or rot. Re-screening is fast and easy. Simply pop off the cap and roll in the new screen wire.
